Global Coffee prices rise 7.1% in June: ICO

The International Coffee Organisation (ICO) in its coffee market report, said that the composite price of coffee averaged US $99.97 cents/lb (0.45kg) in June 2019, 7.1% higher than in May 2019.

According to the report, that was the first increase in the monthly average since January 2019, when prices rose by 0.9% to US $101.56 cents/lb.

The reports says daily composite indicator ranged between US $95.17 cents/lb on 18 June and US $105.25 cents/lb on 28 June. “The daily price rose above 100 US cents/lb for the first time since 18 February 2019 on 30 May and remained above that level on 9 out 20 days during the month of June,” it says.

In May 2019, world coffee exports rose by 19.4% to 11.6 million bags compared to May 2018, it says. The growth, according the report, was led by shipments of Brazilian Naturals coffee type, which rose by 65.4% to 3.5 million bags. However, in May 2018, shipments from Brazil were well below expectations due to a nationwide trucking strike that delayed delivery of coffee to ports.

Brazil’s May exports averaged 2.73 million bags from 2013 to 2017.

Exports of Robusta grew by 8.3% to 4.05 million bags in May 2019 compared to the same month one year ago.
